2022 Oscars Vegas Odds: Betting Odds For Every Category including Best Picture, Best Actor

On Sunday, the 94th annual Academy Awards will be taking place at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles, California. All the stars are expected to be out in celebration of the year in film. This year feels a little bit different.

Unlike last year it will be held in person and once again you have hosts, for the first time since 2019. Regina Hall, Wanda Sykes, and Amy Schumer will host the event. Let's get you up to date with the latest 2022 Oscars Vegas Odds:

2022 Oscars Vegas Odds

Best Picture

The Power of the Dog-135
King Richard+2300
West Side Story+3500
Licorice Pizza+5500
Don't Look Up+6500

The Power of the Dog is still the favorite as it's nominated for 12 different awards this year. Don't sleep on CODA though. It's up to even money at +100 and it really feels like a coin flip between the two films. Unfortunately, as good as the other films are on this list, I don't think any will be able to upset either The Power of the Dog or CODA.

Best Actor

Will Smith-600
Benedict Cumberbatch+650
Andrew Garfield+1100
Denzel Washington+3500
Javier Bardem+4800

Many believe that Will Smith will win his first ever Oscar award. He was the star in King Richard, a film about the life of Serena and Venus Williams. Will Smith has played so many roles over the course of his career but I think you could make the case that this was his best performance of his career. Oddsmakers agree, giving him -600 odds to win.

Best Actress

Jessica Chastain-160
Penelope Cruz+330
Nicole Kidman+470
Kristen Stewart+850
Olivia Colman+1100

Jessica Chastain is the favorite here at -160. Her performance in The Eyes of Tammy Faye was phenomenal. We do have a little bit of a riser recently though to keep an eye on. Penelope Cruz, who started at +2000 is now up to +500. That's a massive swing on odds and absolutely something to keep an eye on.

Best Director

OddsDirectorImplied Chance
-2400Jane Campion96%
+2300Kenneth Branagh4.2%
+2300Steven Spielberg4.2%
+2300Paul Thomas Anderson4.2%
+3500Ryusuke Hamaguchi2.8%

Jane Campion is as close to a lock as you can get for Best Director. Critics are obsessed with The Power of the Dog and apparently so are the oddsmakers here. It would be the biggest upset of the night if someone else takes home this award.

Best Supporting Actor

Troy Kotsur-430
Jodi Smit-McPhee+380
Ciaran Hinds+2900
J.K. Simmons+3500
Jesse Plemons+3500

Here, it feels like Troy Kotsur is going to run away with this one. He's at -430 with Kodi Smit-McPhee with the next best odds at +380. Kotsur's performance in CODA is one of the reasons why it's being talked about as the best picture. This one, like best supporting actress which we will look at in a second, feels like a lock too.

Best Supporting Actress

OddsActressImplied Chance
-1600Ariana DeBose94.1%
+600Kirsten Dunst14.3%
+1800Aunjanue Ellis5.3%
+2500Judi Dench3.8%
+3500Jessie Buckley2.8%

Ariana DeBose is a heavy favorite for Best Supporting Actress for her role in West Side Story. Ironically, in 1961 Rita Morena won this award in the same role. We will see if history repeats itself again.
